DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Dothan Police are investigating the death of a Georgia man in Dothan late Friday night as a possible murder.
Police got a call shortly before 11 p.m. on Friday about a wreck involving a vehicle hitting a house, when police arrived on the scene, they found out a man had been shot and killed.
A man was found dead in front of a home on the 1300 block of Judson Street.
36-year-old Kevin Montreal Jones of Albany, Georgia, was dead inside of a car.
He suffered a gunshot wound to his upper torso which killed him and caused the vehicle to collide with the residence.
Ansel Lewis, a Chicago native, and retired Cook County sheriff, lives in the neighborhood and went outside to see what was going on.
“There were at least eight to ten vehicles out here and there was the yellow tape blocking everything, so I came out and that’s when I found out someone had been shot,” Lewis said.
Dothan police and the Dothan Fire Department responded to the scene.
Lewis says this is not a common occurrence in his neighborhood.
“I do want to say this is not this neighborhood,” Lewis said. “That is not indicative of the type of people that live in this neighborhood from what I understand. I’ve only been here a year, but these are working class, I assume middle class, people that go to work everyday and are raising kids.”
While Lewis says he has never seen anything like this before, the incident does make him concerned about the neighborhood.
Dothan police say there are currently no known suspects.
